The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

No equipment required! Which means less dishes to clean, which is always a good thing!

These raw chocolate haystacks are awesome. I like to store them in the fridge for quick sugar fixes. These haystacks are probably one of my top 5 favourite recipes because they are really quick and really good! 

Best served cold, straight-out of the fridge because coconut oil will liquify again once warm. (Note: you can freeze them for longer storage, but they are moist and much better when refrigerated rather than frozen.)

To get the white-coconut effect as seen in the picture, roll your finished haystacks in some additional shredded coconut before freezing.

I make them with organic agave. I have seen them made with part cacao, part carob. I don't like carob ever, so I skip it. Sometimes to save money I use part raw, organic cacao powder AND part organic, extra dark cocoa powder. I love extra dark chocolate, and these taste like that.

I made it so often years ago and was a crazy fan of it! For some reason I forgot about this site, this dessert, but it clicked today I deserved something peculiar, unsurpassable. This very dessert came to mind and I quickly found the site and the name of this amazing loveliness!

My new favorite snack. Made one variety with chili inside and another with coffee blended in with the coconut oil which I gently heated (which I have to, to melt it in a cold country like I live in anyways). Very lovely. Thank you for this one :)

this recipe looks very good , however maple syrup is not raw it is cooked. even if you were to get your hand on raw maple syrup it would'nt taste very good.

So awesome! I wasn't sure how to make them into stacks without them falling apart, so I put them in muffin pans instead.

These are delicious. I made them for a treat so my nephews have something sweet and good to eat on their ride home.
I rolled mine in cacao for extra decadence.

I was wondering if I could use raw coconut oil melted as I know that it comes in liquid too but I'd rather melt it. I think the raw coconut oil should work well even when it solidifies later right? What do you think?
